Huge Pay-Per-View Fee Set For Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte WBC World Heavyweight Title Fight

Fight fans in America will have to shell out $69.99 to watch Tyson’s Fury defend his WBC world heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte.

Fury and Whyte meet at a sold-out Wembley Stadium for a blockbuster clash inside the squared circle on April 23.

This will be Fury’s fight on British soil since his Deontay Wilder tune-up fights at Manchester Arena and Windsor Park following his return in 2018.

His last five fights have been in the United States and Fury has become a huge star across the pond thanks in part to co-promoter and Top Rank head Bob Arum.

But according to The mirror, the fight with Whyte will be twice as expensive for fans in the US as those in the UK.

On these shores, the slugfest will be shown live exclusively on BT Sport Box Office and will cost £25 (around $33) to buy.

The first meeting between Fury and Wilder at the Staples Center in December 2018 was $75, while the Las Vegas fights were both $79.99.

It’s a massive fight for the UK, hence the 94,000 tickets going like gold, but there probably won’t be as much interest from the US given Whyte has never fought there and lacks the star power that someone like Wilder possesses.

Although Whyte avoided all promotional aspects of the fight, Frank Warren of Queensbury Promotions believes there will be over a million buys in the UK.

As for America, Arum predicts 500,000.

“We think he has a good chance of making maybe half a million buys,” Arum said in January, speaking to iFL TV.

“Because everyone will support and that’s what our projections are at half a million. We’re a little bigger country than the UK.”
